Travel in a time machine to the year 1835
Visitors to the North Carolina History Center at Tryon Palace in New Bern can be transported back in time by a mysterious device located in the Pepsi Family Center. Guests enter through a portal that features spinning lights, sounds, images and news transcripts that follow their journey back to experience the area as it was in 1835. This virtual trip leads to a section of the museum where hands-on experiences combine with touch-screen exhibits that allow parents and children to work as a team to sail a ship, cook in a colonial kitchen, produce a 19th-century newspaper or distill turpentine and produce naval stores. The North Carolina History Center is a 60,000-square-foot facility that uses interactive technology, living history programs and rotating exhibitions to keep the experience fresh and exciting with each visit.
